Evaluation services

We provide a research-based, objective way to determine program effectiveness through external program evaluations. Our approach is client-centered and adheres to the highest research standards and data management strategies.

We’ve conducted program evaluations for federal and state agencies, private foundations, school districts, and nonprofit organizations. Process and outcome evaluations range from specific program elements to large-scale, multi-site evaluations.

Our evaluation services are driven by project, client, and stakeholder needs. They focus on identifying key performance measures to capture program effectiveness.

  • Development and selection of quantitative and qualitative instruments and data collection strategies
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
